HEDINGHAM CASTLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY – AMANDA AND JAMES
Hedingham Castle Wedding Photography! What they said – Terry and Darren were our photographers for the whole day they were fabulous and have given us such wonderful photos to keep. I would recommend them to anyone!
Amanda and James got married in May at the spectacular Hedingham castle, which is an old Norman castle dated around the 11th century in Castle Hedingham Village. They had their ceremony at the castle keep, which was chosen by the bride and groom as the perfect setting – Amanda & James in their own words “Its a castle on a hill overlooking a lake and the village. There wasn’t anything not to like about it. Complete fairytale setting.”. It was a gorgeous day and the sun shone all day long!
Amanda got ready for her soon to be sister-in-law’s home with all of her bridal party, and the atmosphere was so relaxed. Normally Bridal prep is a manic affair, but these girls were so calm, I wondered if a wedding was actually taking place!?. The wedding party then jumped into a very fitting Brenchley Landaulette to get to the ceremony. I, along with the brilliant wedding coordinators, Sarah & Debbie waited for the bridal party to arrive. James got ready with his Groomsmen at the couples flat in Harlow and Darren, my second photographer took the Groomsmen’s photos there. The Groom and his best man travelled to the ceremony in a range rover. and Darren met them there to take a few “Lads” photos, whilst they waited for the ceremony to start.
The ceremony was an intimate affair in The main room of the Castle keep which was lit by only candlelight, which made it really romantic. As the Hedingham castle wedding photographer, I was able to take images from a variety of different locations, including a brilliant upstairs looking down on the wedding party. During the ceremony, It was so personal and so unique. I loved being the wedding photographer at Hedingham Castle and would love to photograph a wedding there again, that’s for sure!
The reception was held at Harlow Town Football club. They chose the venue because it’s near their home and they could totally personalise it. It was a traditional wedding, which really suited the couple. I love shooting these types of weddings because the people are so fun. although the venue doesn’t have loads of open fields or more than ideal places for photographs, the staff at the venue allowed us a free roam, so that gave meant getting onto the football pitch, which gave us some wonderful sunset shots.
The Best Part
The best part of the day was the speeches, because things, as often got a little emotional. I always feel torn when taking images of people in moments of emotion, and this was no exception, but to not take them would leave part of the day unfold. Thanks, James & Amanda for those moments where you let us in.
Amanda wore a beautiful dress supplied by Wed2be in Chelmsford and James wore athree-piecee suit supplied by Moss brothers and they looked so beautiful. Amanda’s flowers were roses in royal blue and James’s buttonhole was a white rose.
The couple met through a text message and spoke for 4 days then met face to face at a mutual friends flat. and have been together for many years. They got in touch with me in 2017 and their enquiry really intrigued me. They said they chose me because I had already photographed James’s sister’s wedding in 2016, and I loved that they just really wanted me there.
Amanda and James’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and had such a fun atmosphere. Here’s their Hedingham Castle Wedding Photography images!
